Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Bears and crocodiles - usually the villains of the piece - are, in this sweet story, just two lost souls looking for a friend. .... I wasn't surprised to learn that this book had been written in collaboration with a class of school children - there is a certain naive stream-of-consciousness feel to the plot that only adds to its appeal.—Carousel

This is a lovely book and David Melling's illustrations are excellent.—writeaway.org

Extremely inventive.—School Librarian

Endearing and poignant tale enhanced by appealing illustrations.—Bournemouth Daily Echo
